A note from Jared

“Our label Channel Classics is not only a recording company but also promotion/marketing company’, says Jared Sacks – founder, producer and engineer. ‘I am grateful to have a fantastic team here at Channel Classics to promote our artists. Marian, Floor, Ad, Lydi and Jonas have been working together for many years to bring my recordings into the world. Their artwork, campaigns, ideas, commitment and their personal approach to artists, managements, distributors, designers, and all involved – is what makes it possible to share these recordings with you, and to put a spotlight on the artists.

– Jared Sacks, Director/ Engineer at Channel Classics Records

Gramophone Editor’s Choices

For our festive 30 Years of Channel Classics compilation Album / SACD, Gramophone Editor-in-chief James Jolly picked 13 of his favorite tracks. Below you will find the 13 Gramophone Editor’s Choices award winning albums that he chose the tracks from, as well as some of our recent releases.

“For 30 years, Channel Classics has been making wonderful recordings: from projects of a rare intimacy courtesy of Florilegium or Rachel Podger to the magnificent edifices that are Mahler’s symphonies, authoritatively conducted by Iván Fischer. Many have caught our imagination, and a fair few have received our monthly Editor’s Choice accolade. Here’s a selection of some of our favourites.”
